When you think of a safari, the image that tends to pop into your head will be a 4×4 in the blazing sun, riding over rocky terrain. This is true, for the most part, but what if there was a completely different way to experience the wilderness?
Kaskazi Horse Safaris are privately guided tours around Northern Tanzania. Renowned for its wildlife and stunning landmarks like the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro, the horseback safari makes for an unforgettable experience.
Although not as well-known as its neighbour Kenya, the country of Tanzania offers equally great opportunities for observing large herds of zebra and wildebeest as they migrate between the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara.
Due to its nature, routes are off the beaten track; this means not only can you explore areas that are inaccessible by vehicles, but horse riding allows you to get closer to the wildlife without disturbing it, only enhancing your experience and visiting areas that aren’t often explored.
But if the unique beauty and knowledge you’ll acquire isn’t enticing enough, experiencing a safari via horseback rather than the traditional jeep ride means you’ll be reducing your carbon foot-print; horseback safaris are a much more eco-friendly and elevated way of feeling at one with the landscape, wildlife and indigenous people.
Each safari is led by qualified guides who are constantly looking for the next adrenaline-charged adventure. You’ll go deep into the bush and enjoy all the beauty that Africa has to offer, engaging with local tribes along the way.
The Kaskazi establishment is formed by their great love of horses and a passion for Africa and its people. With years of knowledge within the safari industry, the next step for them was to explore remote Africa from the back of a horse or by foot combined with tours away from crowded destinations and running engines.
